Communities hosts spaghetti dinner


Communities, Guest writer

Communities students and members of Mid Morning
Kiwanis of Oshkosh hosted the 5th Annual Spaghetti Dinner at Oshkosh North High School. The
9th and 10th-grade students organized the event by obtaining placemat sponsorships,
publicizing the cause on social media, and volunteering at the event. Students planned the
event with the goal of raising $3,500 which is the average cost of treatment of an INARA child.
This year’s event raised $5673.61.
Each year, the Communities’ spaghetti dinner fundraiser benefits an issue selected by the
program and embraced by students in order to raise awareness and financial support. This
year, the fundraiser benefited INARA, a non-profit organization that provides life-altering
medical care for children from conflict areas who have catastrophic injuries or illnesses and are
unable to access treatment due to war. The Communities students began their learning journey
about the Syrian War and INARA at the end of January. To learn more about INARA, visit
Community members purchased tickets sold by the students and the kiwanians. The spaghetti
dinner was held in the Oshkosh North cafeteria prior to the North Boys Basketball game on
February 13th. The event had a great turnout, with over 400 community members served.
